Old place, there's a fee for everything, unfriendly bordering on rude service. Junky property, in need of total makeover, it's not OK to just paint stuff over.

We arrived at this facility on October 8th of 2011 along with three other couples, all staying in different rooms for a vacation of one week. The facility is older and dated, but in relatively good shape (If you use the fitness room, you will find it packed with old and outdated equipment.). We did find a number of issues... More

I would say this resort is clean, well kept with a few things to be aware of. One, the tip is already in your bill and they will not mention this, two do NOT take the free lunch as you will waste over 3 hours of your time. no matter how many times you say no they just keep on... More

We went with our family and were surprised at how big the rooms were. I was concerned because some of the reviews were not so great but we went anyway. The trick is to be nice at the front desk and make sure you ask for a good room. Anywhere but the first floor. The pool area was nice and... More

Stayed hear for a convention. This place is awesome, it was right on the beach. The service was outstanding, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The resort is a time share, but we were never approached by sales people. I will be returning here for a weeks vacation in the near future. Can't wait !

We exchanged a timeshare week into this RCI 'Gold Crown' resort. Not sure how it is a Gold Crown; all the others we have been to have been wonderful. This falls short of the mark in our estimation (though we enjoyed our week in the area). The resort is painted vivid pink, and our first floor room a rather goldy-beige... More

Just realized I had not submitted this review from our January visit. This is a great resort. While it looks like something from the past, the building is really only 30 or so years old. I’m talking about the architecture and design, not the general appearance. When you drive up, the valet is right there to unload your car and... More

we stayed at this vacation villa and few years ago and the condo's were beautiful! there was plenty of room for a family of four in a one bedroom.

This review is coming in a little late. That's because me and my husband just came back home from the most relaxing vacation yet. But maybe its because its the first time we went without the kids.
